HANOVER, Md. -- TDF, continental Europe’s biggest owner of broadcast and telecoms masts, and Ciena Corporation (NYSE: CIEN), the network specialist, today announced TDF has deployed Ciena’s optical solutions to provide 100G capabilities to its customers. This will allow TDF to address the need for increased bandwidth for its customers that are interested in high speed and low latency connectivity.

Already available to customers, the outstanding performances on TDF’s networks have proven to be a commercial success, particularly in Bordeaux where TDF opened its first data center in May 2013. TDF can also leverage Ciena’s converged packet optical platform to expand its network and provide service to new verticals – including IT, healthcare, telecom and government industries – and further strengthen its position in the media space, by fully addressing its specific demand in capacity, speed and power.

Ciena’s expertise in network modernization combined with the strong partnership between the two companies will enable TDF, a Ciena BizConnect partner, to continue developing new services in line with users’ needs, such as very high speed and low latency connectivity and data center interconnection.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
